Buy­ers snap up tower dream

Calgary Herald New Condos - - New Condos - CLAIRE YOUNG

To­talling more than $40 mil­lion since open­ing its sales cen­tre in Fe­bru­ary, Mark on 10th has just sold over half of its units.

The $100-mil­lion down­town apart­ment condo tower at the cor­ner of 10th Av­enue and 8th Street S.W. will have 274 homes. To date, it has sold 140 one­and two-bed­room con­dos.

“We knew Mark’s lo­ca­tion and ameni­ties would be pop­u­lar, but re­sults have ex­ceeded ex­pec­ta­tions,” says Parham Mah­boubi, vice-pres­i­dent of mar­ket­ing and new de­vel­op­ments for de­vel­oper Qualex Land­mark in a news re­lease.

“We sold 30 more suites than we thought we would at this point. In­ter­est­ingly, many of our home­buy­ers equally ranked great views as they did the out­stand­ing rooftop ameni­ties as rea­sons for buy­ing.”

The 35-storey build­ing’s lux­ury rooftop lounge and fit­ness cen­tre puts the so­cial sphere right at the top.

As well, Mark on 10th will fea­ture a com­mis­sion by world-renowned Cana­dian artist and author Dou­glas Cou­p­land.

Gen­eral con­trac­tor ITC has be­gun con­struc­tion on the site, start­ing with ex­ca­vat­ing and shoring. Con­struc­tion is ex­pected to be com­pleted in the fall of 2015.

Mark on 10th is a mixed-use high­rise tower de­signed by Rafii Ar­chi­tects in part­ner­ship with BKDI Ar­chi­tects Inc., Trepp De­sign Inc. in­te­rior de­sign and Du­rante-Kreuk Land­scape Ar­chi­tects.

Con­dos at Mark on 10th start in the low $200,000s.
